LYING 700km off the coast of Africa is a small island paradise, its authenticity still perfectly preserved despite growing tourist demand. Madeira is the sun-kissed destination giving the likes of the Canary Islands and Marbella a run for their money. The island is a part of Portugal, though it sits closer to Morocco in the North Atlantic Sea.
Whatever happened during your divorce, whether it was difficult or easy, you will definitely be left with some regrets. These will vary but it may be that you didn't get to do what you wanted to do whilst you were married, or that your thought patterns weren't allowed to develop, or you are now hampered by habits you are finding hard to break.
There is no doubt in my mind; we are reaching that critical junction when all Consumer Rights are now under real threat - the question is, who will defend those Travel Consumer Rights in this brave new world?
It's one o'clock in the morning and I'm in the middle of a crowded beach in the Spanish town of Saint Sebastian. Or at least I think it's one in the morning; having dropped my phone in a river a few weeks ago, I can't really be certain.
Listening to the Valedictory speech, eavesdropping on her descriptions of her travel experience and seeing pictures of different cultures on her mobile phone convinced me that she had a knowledge that needed to be shared with people like me who had passed our age goals for travel but still had hopes of seeing more countries with our green passports and humble earnings.
When you think of rhinos - horns, poaching and Africa - are probably conjured in your mind's eye and that's hardly surprising as these prehistoric pac...
It's all to easy to head back to the same destination year on year as one of the most difficult components of booking a holiday is finding the inspiration of where to head to next. After all, beaches come in all shapes and sizes but how many of them really offer us a truly unique experience?
Geneva was recently voted the third most expensive city in the world, so it's easy to see why most Brits simply fly into the airport and head to the Alps. However by doing this, they're missing out on a treat, albeit a costly one.
Growing up in the UK I've always been acutely aware of the massive gulf that exists between the Iran I know and love and the hostile news reports seen in the media. Whereas to me Iran represents beauty, culture, history and generosity of spirit, to the rest of the world it simply seems to represent terror.
There is so much to do in this beautiful city and without having to shell out a fortune as is so often perceived. It's well worth exploring by foot and making sure you leave enough time to explore all the sights and scenes without feeling rushed
This year, we found ourselves in on a small and paradisaical island in the Caribbean sea, Isla Mujeres, just a 20-minute ferry ride from Cancun. Festivities were just a fraction of those that we were used to, but the island life gifted us a dreamlike independence that we shall treasure forever.
Summer's over. Feeling blue? Here's the good news. Autumn's just around the corner, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, of olive and grape harvests, and food festivals across the continent. It's a time for leaf-scattered walks, followed up by cosy suppers in firelit pubs, or short-hop city breaks, where the streets throng with market stalls and it's still warm enough to linger over lunch in pavement cafes.
Traveling with the limiting Ukrainian passport, and therefore, a limited UK visa lasting for only 6 months I couldn't pass the opportunity to visit the famous magnificent Isle of Skye in Scotland. Traveling together with my partner, we took the whole trip very indie
Over the Sallah holiday in Nigeria, I visited Oke Idanre hill in Ondo State with 26 other adventurous and fun people as part of a tour organized by an awesome Nigerian tourism company, Social Prefect tours (SPT). Idanre was my 3rd tour with SPT in 2016, after one other location within Nigeria and one outside Nigeria as part of my goal to visit 5 Countries this year
The human race has always had an insatiable appetite for exploration; despite the fact maps used to say "there be dragons here", or feared that we'd sail off the edge, heading over the horizon is in our nature. Jump 1000 years later and we're still doing it. Everywhere on the globe is now reachable by air travel, but with rising population comes rising demand...
In the end, to continue my life as normal, I am learning to make my peace with slower progress. Funnily enough, my new job will include French language training. The learning method? A couple of hours of lessons a week.
